Electro-Optical Systems Laboratory
Dr. Gisele Bennett is the director of the Electro-Optical Systems Laboratory, founder of the Logistics and Maintenance Applied Research Center (LandMARC) with the Georgia Tech Research Institute and Professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Her areas of interest include; automatic identification technologies using RFID and optical tagging; Electronic Performance Support Systems (EPSS), and optical coherence and signal processing. Research activities include the study of optical encryption schemes for secure communications and transmission of 3-D images through optical imaging systems. Dr. Bennett has conducted research in the area of optical imaging through dynamic inhomogeneous media and imaging systems with resolving power beyond the classical diffraction limit, which resulted in a copyright of code to simulate wave propagation through the atmosphere. Other activities include optical measurements for exploitation of foreign equipment, such as night vision devices, thermal imagers, and rangefinders. She has a patent on an active RFID system that was designed for monitoring condition and location of assets. She has served as a reviewer for NIH proposals and a reviewer for numerous referred journals. She is a topical editor for Applied Optics Image Processing journal, a member of IEEE, OSA, SPIE, SOLE, Sigma Xi, Tau Beta Pi, Eta kappa Nu and is currently on AIM’s RFID Experts Advisory Group (REG). She is one of ten fellows chosen for Georgia Tech’s University Leadership program. She has over 80 publications in refereed journals, technical reports, and workshops.
